The Devil's Highway
The Korean Conflict
2023 In the second year of the US Civil War, North Korea invades. This is followed by a limited exchange of nuclear weapons.
2024 Most of the West Coast of the USA remains a battle zone. The East Coast an irradiated hell, as is North Korea and patches of Continental USA. The President of the USA is either dead or incommunicado. China invade North Korea and begins its annexation. Russia invades China. The Second Nuclear War begins.
2025 Korean forces, cut off from their homeland, declare independence in California. This Regime barely lasts a year before fragmenting due to the emergence of Warlords and the destabilising influence of insurgents.
